New York Police Department officers at a stationhouse in Manhattan have been ordered to remove political signs and stickers from their patrol vehicles.
A number of vehicles used by officers have stickers urging people to vote ‘no’ in a referendum to hold a constitutional convention in Albany.
Speaking to the New York Post, a City Hall spokesperson said certain city employees, including police officers, are “prohibited from engaging in political activity during work hours.”
The constitutional convention could result in a slew of changes to the Constitution, including to the pensions police officers receive.
The order comes just a few days after officers were asked to remove the same political stickers from patrol vehicles in The Bronx.
